When you get there and experience the ship and its staff I'm sure that you will find that they are all "WORTHY", it would be most unusual for Royal Caribbean if they were not. So why not consider the situation after you have experienced the service and not make a decision in advance as you seem to be doing. I am assuming that there is no ulterior motive behind the question. .... Neil.
Having made your point perhaps you will answer the question.
Usually you are provided with a form a few days before the end of the cruise. You can use this form to opt out of the automatic deduction for tips. Make sure you sigh for everyone in your party.
You can check when you board the ship if thst is still the procedure or search the vast number of posts on tips on this site.
Ooooh, pardon me for expressing an opinion and only sort of answering the question but I think you'll find that with RCI you only get a form asking if you want RCI to convert your bill into sterling not whether you want to opt out of paying them automatically...now, of course, I may be wrong and if I am then please let me apologise in advance because I would hate to feel the rough side of your glove again (even though I did enjoy it a little, and once more, Oooooh!) Love and kisses . ... Neil.
On your knees Neil, he's quite correct. The 'opt in system form' was certainly still in operation to the middle of this year with RCI.....The birch or the cat o' nine tails? ...you choose.
The birch or the cat - far too soft on Neil.
A more fitting punishment would be a two week cruise with his favourite cruise line P and O. On reflection make that two cruises with P and O (LOL).
